Started as a good quiz but spelling mistakes and overly specific answers ruined it, e.g. Rockies should work for Rocky Mts.

Kansas City was named after the Kansas River, not the state of Kansas, which did not exist when Kansas City was named.

Good catch, cpg. I'm from Missouri and that one went right by me. Technically, though, Kansas did exist at the time the city was officially named. Kansas City, MO was first called Westport Landing, then became the Town of Kansas in 1839. In 1853 it was incorporated as City of Kansas, and finally it was incorporated again in 1889 as Kansas City which was after Kansas became a state. But as you stated, it was never named for the state, only the river.

It's Qaeda, not Queda. Surprised that 38% were able to get it. I tried several different spellings but never found yours. I enjoyed the quiz, but I think the clue for Four Corners could be improved. At first I thought you were wanting the names of the four states, which was confusing. Perhaps change it to, "Place where four states meet," or something like that?

Misspelled Ithaca "Ithica." Wasn't aware of the Ohio city even though the answer appears on my history by letter - X quiz. and Zuni? Never heard of that before. Maybe you could have put on a question about Zion National Park.

A lot depends on whose data you're looking at, but: Going by city limits only, Austin (>900k) looks like the biggest. Going by metro areas, however, it looks like it's Boston (~4.6 mil), followed by Denver (~2.7 million), Sacramento (~2.1 million), and finally Austin (~1.9 million).

Quizzer6794, please remove the Xenia, Ohio question. I am a child born and raised in the United States. I knew every single question except for that one. If Xenia has any historical significance, it fails to come to mind. Please, can you find another thing for "X"?

Umm...thanks.

Me neither. Mainly because it's spelled al-Qaida where I'm from and I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't work.

Boston is not the largest capital city by any measure. "Joe Biden" is a weird answer for J, because usually people are categorized by last name, and there are better answers in that respect (Jefferson, most notably, as the author of the Declaration of Independence). Also the qualifier in the clue for N is weird. Why did you write "largest city that isn't a state capital"? New York is just the largest city, period.

Did anyone else read the "Declaration of Independence singer" instead of "signer?" I can't be the only one who made that silly mistake XD

Awesome quiz though- I nominated it for the Featured list, hope that it wins eventually XD
